Аннотация: Structural, optical and nonlinear optical properties of strontium tetraborate (SBO) single crystals are summarized. SBO presently is not considered to be a ferroelectric, however, domain structures consisting of alternating oppositely poled domains, strongly resembling those present in such ferroelectrics as potassium titanyl phosphate and lithium niobate, were recently discovered in this crystal. Such geometrical properties as orientation, size, and degree of randomization, of these domain structures are described. The problem of origin of domain structures in SBO is considered, as well as the possibility of their characteristics control. From the point of view of optical properties, domain-structured samples of strontium tetraborate are classified as randomized nonlinear photonic crystals. Comparative study of nonlinear diffraction and random quasi-phase-matching of nanosecond and femtosecond laser pulses in these nonlinear photonic crystals is presented. Prospects of creation of nonlinear optical converters of laser radiation into VUV spectral region based on domain structured strontium tetraborate are discussed.
